The idea of a high-performance rental Mustang is nothing new. The first was a fleet of 1966 GT350H Mustangs provided to Hertz rental cars back in the day. Now Shelby American will provide a bunch of 2019 Shelby GTs, based on the 600+ horsepower ‘Shelby GT-S’ being the first supercharged V8 Shelbys to ever be offered for rental. You might not get one for the same 1966 price of $17 a day and 17 cents a mile, but they should prove to be just as much fun.

‘The SIXT edition Shelby GT-S combines terrific handling with astonishing power, excellent braking, a muscular exhaust note and striking good looks.’ ‘We worked closely with SIXT to design a car that makes a bold statement when you see it and then delivers when behind the wheel. SIXT is giving the public a very rare opportunity to enjoy one of the best sports cars in the world at some of the most exciting destinations in the US. This is the rental car experience that people could only dream about before the Shelby GT-S,’ stated Vince LaViolette, Shelby American Vice President of Operations and Head of Development.

The SIXT edition 2019 Ford Shelby GT-S Mustang will be available in the summer of 2019 aand feature a supercharged 5.0L V8 going through a 10 speed automatic transmission, Brembo brakes, upgraded suspension, proprietary bodywork and a bunch of SIXT badges. Each vehicle will have a Shelby serial number and will be entered into the official Shelby Registry. When each vehicle has run its rental course, they will be available to buy and can be returned to the factory for further upgrades if needed.

The original 1966 Shelby GT350H rental cars are now sought-after rarities due to them not just being limited edition but obviously used and abused at the time, but also the engines sometimes swapped out by racers back then as a kind of inadvertent rent an engine for the day for their own rides. Swapping out the engines is not recommended these days, but the latest crop of rental Shelby should still prove to be a long-term investments.
